The Owl and the Girl

After weeks and weeks of no painting at all, I finally picked up the paint brushes again and started a new mixed media painting that I finished two days ago. It feels so good! This time I tried to be less messy, "cleaner", actually paint a little scene. I'm not quite sure whether I really succeeded in it, but I do like the result. It's on an 8x8 stretched canvas.

Oh, and you bet - it will be in my Etsy shop very soon.

This, however, is not my first "The Owl and the Girl" painting - a few weeks ago I created another mixed media painting featuring a girl and an owl. I did make it for the swap with Donna who sent me her wonderfully altered book.

Yes, the owl is a photo of "my" Mama Owl. I hope I will see her again next year.

Wonderful work, Carola. And I'm hoping to see your mama owl again next year.
May you continue creative throughout the coming year.

Love the new canvas, especially since it has such meaning after your owl story this year. I spent the bulk of the day cleaning up my craft space - did lots of organizing and some purging. Hope that this will help be more creative in the new year.

see you there! said...

Like both pieces. You have the start of a theme you can develop. I can imagine all sorts of owl/girl paintings just waiting for you to create them.

I like that the blue painted canvas looks like fabric! Guess canvas is fabric of sorts!
Love both of these! Your mixed media mixes well to my eye!

I love them both and as Darla says I can see a theme evolving from this.
